. >>. >> jonathan, we've got the materials at hand which has been discovered, the pressure cooker, battery pack and circuit board and i didn't mention a piece of black nylon that was part of the bag. >> the best estimate that we have gotten is if they can track this to where they were sold and who purchased them, that's going to lead us to the suspect. we've seen this in previous investigations in the 1993 world trade center bombing. and as a result they caught the suspects m sa suspects. same theory here. that's part of the investigation and pouring all over the videotapes for leads and that one piece of videotape of a suspect putting down a bag outside the lord & taylor or caught on the lord & taylor surveillance tape is another. again, as pete williams and myself have been reporting all day, there is no suspect. there is no arrest. there is no specific name. now, we've been told that there have been several names out there that obviously they would want to run them down but we've been told that it's ruled out. the investigation is ongoing, moving forward. the piece of tape is one of many cri
and jonathan capehart, political writer for "washington post" and msnbc contributor. luke, are they going to have the votes in the end or not? >> most likely not. 60 is a very steep hill for this. the reason why, a lot of those republican senators who voted for this to move forward on cloture have now backtracked. what's interesting, though, i think that's really happened here is two things. everyone's attention shifted to boston, to the pr push that the gun control lobby that they would have is not the same. the newtown families aren't registers as much today as they would have had that tragedy in boston not occurred. number two, boehner in the house put out a pretty declarative statement last week. we're going to water down whatever comes out of the senate. if you're a republican senator, if you're a red state democrat, why go out on a limb for this when the house is probably going to sit on it? >> harry reid, i mean, he knows when he's got the votes and when he doesn't. why would he proceed with this? i mean, i wonder, is that part of the pr strategy? put it on the floor, let it fail a
's drill down on the legal status of the boston bombing suspect. kendall coffey. the great jonathan turley, here in washington. thank you for this. can they decide later if a poiee of evidence shows up a week from now, that shows a connection, e-mail, whatever, connection with al qaeda, taking orders, timing, that kind of thing? does the government change the status of this defendant? >> no, he's a u.s. citizen. he has presumption of innocence. some people get constitutional rights and some do not. they've always focused on whether the person is a u.s. senate as key factor here. what senator graham was talking about is pretty alarming. he's talking about enemy combatants which is -- >> suppose you go overseas to join al qaeda somewhere and you're with them. are you still an american under the law? >> my view you are. >> under the government's view? >> well, we haven't changed the u.s. constitution yet. and what senator graham is talking about is actually wruziwruz i using enemy combatant status as a way of getting evidence. it's no longer the justification we have to ice thsolate them in g
reporter jonathan dienst. thank you, jonathan. what do we got new? you've listened to the first part of this show. we're talking about what the suspect has had to say, the surviving suspect about being out there all alone. two brothers operating alone, technically, and also apparently ideologically. they were picking up their radicalization over the internet. not through any coaching or role of anybody as a sort of a recruiter. >> well, that is the claim that investigators say is being made by the wounded younger brother who continues to recover in the hospital. investigators are now running around, as you heard, they're trying to verify that. they are checking with all of the relatives. you've got the wife, you've got two sisters in new jersey. you've got the parents overseas. you've got russian intelligence. you've got -- they're tracking their cell phones. as of now, nothing to indicate, but, again, it is still very early on for them to have done a deep dive to find out exactly if there are any connections to any others, whether there's a bomb maker or a trainer or some sort of ji
extremist ties, but the case on him was closed. >> alisyn: joining us is jonathan guilliams, a former fbi special agent with joint terrorism task force as well as a retired navy seal and formal federal air marshall. you have done it all jonathan. >> i get bored easy. >> alisyn: you were talking to us while we were talking to molly that you think there could have been mistakes made at the finish line at the boston marathon they could have secured it better? >> sure. you typically see in any special event in some events like a marathon, the beginning you will have in the case of the marathon you have like 70,000 people there. but at the very end, you are going to have all those people congregating, you will have the families there and so typically the end of a event whether it's a yankee game or marathon is a very, very critical time. and it's a critical area. so you have to look at what the vulnerabilities are to that critical area. and you would typically freeze that zone. >> alisyn: when you say freeze, you mean not allow backpacks to get into that square block radius? >> what good does
down when you compare it to 30 or 40 years ago. the fox report's jonathan hunt is here with more on that. we hear about the threats all the time. but the facts show that we are more safe than before. explain that. >> yeah. the worst attack we've gone through since 9-11 was actually the fort hood shooting in 2009, 13 people killed there. boston stands out because it is, in fact, among the highest casualties with three dead and 176 wounded in that attack. other than that, 9-11, of course, then you have the 1993 world trade center attack, the 1995 oklahoma city bombing. but other than that, as i said, relatively safe. much better than the 1970s, for instance, when there were far more global terrorist attacks. experts say part of the reason is because law enforcement, very simply in cities like new york city, have become much better since 9-11 at stopping these things. listen. >> since 9-11, new york has been the target of 17 plots and only one of them you could say really succeeded and the suspect made it to times square. but the others didn't work because of a lot of good intellige
're welcome. jenna: jonathan cha unc er is a form terrorist analyst at the treasury department. what catches your attention when you see what the last 24 hours has brought us? >> obviously right now what is grabbing my attention is that we don't seem to have any leads at all. this reminds me a great deal of the atlanta bombing in 1996 that went unsolved for seven years. what we look for right now is perhaps a foreign group to claim responsibility, which we have not seen. in fact the pakistani taliban went out of its way today to disavow the attacks, this is a group that was responsible for that 2010 times square attempted attack and so they've disavowed it. no one else has come forward on this. and so, you know, we begin to question about whether this is a domestic attack. it's obviously incredibly too soon to tell. >> you studied arabic extensively. you jump on some of these websites to check out the quote unquote public chatter that is happening before or after an event like this. what have you seen, read, heard? >> haven't seen anything much at all. there was a group in jordan celebrating
. heather: former fbi special counterterrorism agent in new york, jonathan gilliam joins us to talk more about this you're a lead investigator in the case. someone knows who did this, begging people and the public come forward with any tips they may deem important for them to see, pictures, information, anything for the public's help. what does that tell but the state of their investigation? >> you can never tell where the bureau or the task force is in their investigation. they're the best at what they do. from this point forward there is nobody better than what they do as far as digging through this massive puzzle of, of investigative leads. one thing that you have to look at here is that there's two investigations going on. there's one investigation that's going on from the point of the explosion for ward. and there's also an investigation going on looking how this actually happened. the second investigation of how this actually happened ties in with who actually did it and that's where they're asking the public for their assistance. most people don't realize they can be an integral p
through these tough times. >> alisyn: we turn to fox news contributor father jonathan morris who joins us. more evil that we've seen. what are we supposed to make of it? >> well, i think the first thing to make of it, and i'll talk about this in my church a little later this morning, is that not all ideas are created equal. as the doctor before us in the last setting spoke, not all ideas are created equal. some are true, some are false. whether you use the name of god or not. some are rational and some are stupid. anyone who suggests that their idea or their belief impells them to kill the innocent are not only radical but they have lost their minds, and we have to make sure that nobody gets away with saying somehow these are my beliefs, my beliefs are based on my understanding of god, and therefore, they might be equally as true as others. simply not true o. all of us, believer, non-believer,s christians, jews, we can all stand up to that and we have to. >> clayton: what do you say to those who might find their faith rattled. those who were there looking on the horror, how can god let th
